According to the Wolfram site
Mathematica 5.2 runs on HP-UX with the PA-RISC processor.
But if you had an Itanium box (specifically zx2000) running HP-UX would
it run? I'm led to believe HP-UX on 64-bit Itanium has a binary
compatabiltiy layer which allows binaries for PA-RISC to run. See:
where it states:
"Additionally, moving to a new architecture usually creates numerous
compatibility challenges and often forces customers to leave behind
application software that they value. HP has addressed this issue nicely
with HP-UX 11i v2 for Itanium processor-based systems, which offers near
functional equality and binary compatibility to HP-UX 11i v1 for PA-RISC."
If anyone does run Mathematica on the HP-UX operating system on the
Itanium processor, what is the performance like? I have no idea how much
this binary compatability impacts performance. If the Itanium emulates
all the PC-RISC instructions, I suspect it runs slower than on the older
PA-RISC chip, despite the much higher peformance of Itanium.
I know Mathematica runs on Linux on Itanium, but that is not an option,
for other reasons, so I am just interested if it runs on HP-UX with the
Minefield Consultant and Solitaire Expert (MCSE).
